Thank you for visiting my site. My name is Virginia , however all my friends and family call me by my nickname ' Ginny ' .
I would like to take a few moments to allow you to get to know me. I am a mother, housewife, master gardner and last but not least, a photographer.
I have been a gardner and landscaper for most my adult life. Four years ago I decided to invest in a better camera, A Sony cybershot, which allowed me to take pictures of my extensive gardens. This is when I fell in love with photography. I began to carry it eveywhere with me. My Sony took great pictures but I recently decided to purchase a semi-professional camera because I wanted to share all the beauty that I experience everyday.
I had also realized that I had a keen 'knack' and 'eye' for natural beauty. It felt so natural and really comfortable to be behind the lens of the camera. Every shot of course is not a 'keeper' but then there is that one shot that seems to scream out, 'Wow, that is what I wanted to capture, awesome!'
I have taken day long hikes in the many gorges Ithaca is well known for. I have hiked miles in the woodlands, creeks, streams and around the lakes that are so rich in my surrounding area. For those of you that do not live around here , you cannot imagine the beauty. I have found 'hidden' falls and ponds of unimagineable beauty that few, if any, have had the pleasure of capturing. 'Virgin' lands have become a deep passion and yearning for me. Although, it is true, I have photos of the infamous gorges and State Parks of Ithaca, hence our slogan, 'Ithaca is gorges', I too, have many photos of unknown areas that offer you sheer beauty and a sensse of peacefulness. These are only a few of the emotions I hope to share with you in your visit today.
So pull up a chair or anything else that makes you comfortable grab a beverage and relax and enjoy your next moments of beauty that I will share with you. I hope that you all feel the pleasure that I so intensely felt as I walked amongst nature. May you feel and smell the air, experience the peace and hear the sounds that are so rich within each photo.
Maybe . . . .just maybe, I will inspire some of you to grab your camera, jump in the car or on a bike or on a horse and venture out to a place where you think there just might be a hidden oasis!
If I have given anything to those that are taking the time to visit my site, which I much appreciate, I hope and pray that I have given you a sense of love. I truly hope that I leave you feeling peaceful, content and reunited with Mother Earth.
